      Racist and Sexist Environment with No Promotions Available for Top Talent

      Apr 22, 2021 - Field Clinical Representative in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Get to work with interesting technology, fulfilling doctor and patient interactions, making a tangible impact on peoples' lives.

      Cons

      If you work in New York City, beware of a sexist and racist team environment driven by an alpha-male sales culture. Sexual harassment and assault by team members and/or customers has been swept under the rug. Frequent racist, sexist, xenophobic, and homophobic remarks are made on team communication platforms. The team is nearly entirely white in the most diverse city in America. There is very FREQUENT turnover of the most talented people every 2-3 years due to the terrible environment and lack of a promotion. The pay is significantly less than other competitors. You will routinely work 12-15 hour days multiple times per week with no pay increase compared to an FCR who works 8 hour days.

      Pros

      Competitive wages, great inclusion and diversity. Opportunities for career growth. Great benefits.

      Cons

      Warehousing space is very tight in both locations of Maple Grove and Arden Hills, MN. Makes it difficult to maneuver to perform job tasks. Not very "Team" oriented in Maple Grove, MN. It is such a massively huge company, sometimes I feel like a very replaceable number. I would rate it a 5 star company but they made a business decision to move Urology production from Minnetonka, MN to Arden Hills, MN that is forcing me to double my commute. :( Making me want to look for employment elsewhere, after 27 years, closer to home.

      Excellent Company to grow your career

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I have truly enjoyed my career at Boston Scientific! I have had leadership and a professional landscape that allowed me to grow a deep skill set and vast opportunity in Cardiac Rhythm Management. The culture, ethics in business and dedication to putting their patients first make me proud to say I work for BSC. Boston Scientific is committed to an inclusive work place- they walk the walk. It has been a great experience!

      Cons

      Cardiac Rhythm Management can sometimes be described as a vocation- but there are times where work/life balance can be a challenge to find.

      Work life balance

      Pros

      Patient focused culture. Employee development and diversity, and inclusion. They do care for their employees and offer flexible schedules. Work life balance is big.

      Cons

      Will take some time to move up. You have to speak up and make your goals very clear and keep pushing. Some department managers still chose favorites. Compensation is not bad but not the best compared to similar companies and roles.

      Could be better

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Climate controlled, easy work, as much overtime as you could generally want.

      Cons

      Lots of forced overtime, generally always short handed. Large issue of favoritism, ie the department supervisor picks friend's for positions they aren't suited for better than someone else. Those same friends are able to get away with slacking off and doing just about whatever but if your not in their little group then it's not advisable to try it yourself at any point. Have seen instances where someone is going for the same position as 1 of the supervisors friend are and the supervisor will, in turn, treat that person like crap to discourage them from taking it.
